A dynamic problem off of two small crimps. Set your feet and throw for the juggy bowl up right.


On the large, orange, slightly overhanging wall facing the clearing of the Facemeat area.

Neal Kaptain did the first ascent. First or second try, right off the couch. I did watch, however.

Special secret beta: Go to the top and clear pine needles out of the giant bucket, because the mantle is kind of the crux. Also, throwing left to sloper first was easier for me and friends. Soft 6, pretty fun.

I'm short (5'6), and throwing for the left (no it's not exactly a bucket jug, but yes, it will stick) is much, much easier for me. Mantle is still the crux, and I crimped on crystals and ended up with a lot of scratches on my arms. Awesome sauce problem.
